Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen Aug-29-16
29 years old, USCF rating ~1750. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

   Aug-02-16 Ding Liren vs W So, 2016
dumbgai: <On 32...Kxf7 33.Qc4+ and the trade of Q's (Qxc4 bxc4) is forced, and there is nothing to stop the black b-pawn from queening.> I probably shouldn't have laughed at this, but I did. I laughed hard.

dumbgai: Popilski beat Kamsky in Calgary, in a game where Kamsky must have gotten his move-order wrong in the opening:
   Jul-28-16 Svidler vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: <abuzic> Yes, that was a missed opportunity by Svidler.
   Jul-28-16 Biel (Svidler - MVL) (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: MVL got a very nice mating attack with the black pieces in game 3.

dumbgai: Wei Yi had a good showing here, only losing to Carlsen and winning against Giri.
   Jul-19-16 Wei Yi vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: Probably transmission error. Lots of stuff gets shuffled around on the board at the end of the game, which may be interpreted as moves.
   Jun-27-16 11th Edmonton International (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: Good tournament for Banerjee, 4.5/9 and holding 3 GMs to draws. Also a nice final round win for Sambuev, beating the higher rated Sethuraman (who struggled, losing 3 games).
   Jun-15-16 Russia-China Match (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: China needed +3 in the final round (men and women's combined standings) to catch up, and they got +2. Russia wins 25.5-24.5.
   Jun-09-16 Topalov vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: The position after 14...d5 is unusually symmetrical for this opening. Black quickly seized the initiative soon after that.
   May-27-16 M Petrosyan vs I Kovalenko, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: <The finish would be 140... Nd1 141. f4 Ne3 142. f5 Ng4 143. f6 g2#> Good find. I would have played 141...Nf2+ 142. Nxf2 and then either g2+ or Kxf2 or even gxf2, all of which easily win but don't mate immediately.
